Santorini is an island like no other. The first sight of the island is of hundreds of whitewashed building draped over the side of a striking volcano against the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea. With more churches than homes scattered over the island and more wine than water at lunch, this is an island that's bound to steal your heart.
Here are some of the best experiences in Santorini, for your Grecian holiday.
Jump off a cliff and plunge straight into the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. This secret location at Amoudi Bay is absolutely breathtaking and is one of the most exhilarating things to do in Santorini. Look for the flight of stairs going down from Oia into Amoudi Bay, turn left along the cliff face and climb up the massive boulder. Then take a deep breath and jump in! ?

If you're looking for some of the coolest photo ops in Santorini, this hike is a dream come true. From Fira, all the way to Oia is a three-hour trek (if you walk at an unhurried pace). We recommend taking the trek close to sunset since it won't be too hot, and the entire landscape will be awash in golden light.

Live in a Cave
Greece is full of amazing places to stay and experience life through the eyes of a local. The Cave land hostel - which can be found on Airbnb - is wonderfully Grecian. With a whitewashed cave-style building and stark blue doors that are draped with fuchsia flowers, you can lounge about the pool, stretch out in a yoga class, or chat up the friendly staff for recommendations on where to spend the evenings. In addition, this hostel is only a 15-minute walk to the town where you can quickly find yourself at the centre of all the buzz!

Just down the steps from Oia to Amoudi Bay are the waterfront restaurants where you can watch the fishermen row to shore with their fresh catch and feast on some on some of the freshest seafood imaginable. The Mediterranean cuisine is famous for its light, healthy preparations of meats and seafood, so you can sit back and enjoy a meal that is both healthy and delicious.

Dinner with a View
With some of the best views in the world here in Santorini, we recommend splurging at least on one meal at one of the many gorgeous restaurants that overlook the ocean. Ask for a sunset reservation and prepare to be swept away by both the food and the views. Watch the fiery red ball descend into the glimmering ocean, dig into a delicious seaside meal, and if you're lucky, you might even catch a fireworks show on display.
